Mercury Detox with DMPS (IV)

First of all, may I say that almost everything you have mentioned is associated with mercury toxicity. Here are the answers:

Question #1: Are these symptoms usual for this treatment given my medical history?

Question #2: What is your recommendation for treating mercury toxicity?

Question #3: How important is it to jump right in, go into debt, and have my dental work redone? I have six crowned molars with 5 root canals and fillings in 2 other teeth.

Question #4: As an alternative to the dental reworking would it be adequately prudent to monitor my mercury levels and see if they increase in a year or so?

Question #5: What are the other sources of mercury (other than oyster shell and bone meal, broken thermometers) with which I might unknowingly come into contact?

1. Yes, if the treatment is aggressive. The trick is to go slow and bring out the mercury without making the patient sick. You will get over this; then avoid aggressive mercury removal.
2. DMSA oral with Chlorella
3. First of all, there is no point to chelating mercury while you still have it in your mouth. First get it out, then do the chelation. Otherwise you are on a treadmill. If you have symptoms of mercury toxicity, they will not improve with a big load of mercury in your teeth.
4. No, not if you are symptomatic from mercury.
5. Thimerasol, seafood along, dental amalgam and industrial exposure accounts for 99% of mercury toxicity.
